Our doors are open!
With the easing of restrictions, it's great that you can now head to the pub just like the olden days.
It’s still very important to us that we strike the right balance between loosening up the restrictions, whilst also being mindful of our customers’ and crews’ continued safety and well-being. With that in mind, we wanted to reassure you that we will, of course, continue with our high standards of cleaning in all we do. We will continue to sanitise tables between use and whilst there are no longer any restrictions, we are still mindful of the spacing of our tables, to ensure you feel comfortable. We will continue to make sure the pubs are nicely ventilated and some of our crew and customers alike will choose to carry on wearing a face coverings.
And, just to let you know, we’ll be happily redeeming meal tickets, (collect 6 and receive a main course up to £12). Don’t worry if you have tickets with a November 2020 expiry on, we’ll be glad to extend these until November 2021, just dust them off and bring them along.
We are so looking forward to seeing you soon.
You will find our pub down a long sweeping drive with majestic trees, overlooking a small lake surrounded by hills and hollows. We have plenty of picnic benches on the lawn and parasoled terraces to enjoy the beautiful views and gardens, dining or drinking al fresco.
Inside it's just as lovely - a 16th Century inglenook fireplace, nooks and crannies everywhere and history seeping through its veins.
It's a gorgeous environment to dine in, from our menus that are created daily from fresh, local produce, dreamt up by our talented team of chefs who cater for lighter appetites as well as those wanting hearty British pub classics. Equally it's a great drinking environment in our bar areas that offer a haven for dogs and their owners who love to try a myriad of fine whiskies, gins and real ales
Our passion lies in finding quality fresh ingredients and preparing, cooking and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way. Our menus have a spine of classic British dishes complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world. We upload them to our web site each day so that you may peruse them at your leisure.
Thanks to our customers recommending us, you'll find us in the:
